Worker’s Compensation Retraining Program
Cosmotek College is an approved school for Worker Comp retraining program. We can design a career training program that is right for you, given your injuries/disabilities.
A retraining program is a workers’ compensation benefit that is designed to help injured employees re-enter the workforce. The benefit allows a permanently disabled worker to be paid two-thirds of his or her weekly wage while training for a new job in a different field. A vocational rehabilitation counselor will help you enroll in a school or certification program that will lead to gainful employment. When you do find a job, your workers’ compensation wage loss benefits will stop. However, if you are only able to find a job that pays you less than your previous wage, workers’ compensation must make up the difference.
What is a retraining voucher?
A retraining voucher is simply the name for the workers’ compensation benefit allocated for job retraining expenses. The voucher can be used to pay for school or professional certification in California, as well as any books or materials required for the course. An injured worker can use up to 10 percent of the voucher’s value for career counseling services, such as resume building or interview assistance.
The value of the retraining voucher depends on the date of your injury. For injuries occurring in 2013 or after, the voucher is worth $6,000 for all permanently disabled workers. The retraining voucher cannot be used to pay for anything other than the expenses related to a retraining program, and it must be used within two years of its issue date or within five years of the injury, whichever is later.
